How a Deaf High School Mascot Moves the Crowd to His Beat

On the court, the Portland High School Bulldogs are reigning Maine state basketball champions. But, during most games this season, the crowd often finds it inspiration from what’s happening on the sidelines.

Freshman Kamron King is the team’s mascot and “sixth man.” Dressed in an over-sized gray Bulldog outfit, King often runs the sidelines getting the crowd into a frenzy. He’s also deaf and can’t hear any of it.
